MP United Football Club crushed Tan Holdings FC, 6-1, in the boys U18 game in the 2013 NMIFA Spring Youth League last Saturday at the Oleai Sports Complex Field.
Tanapon Unsa lifted MP United to the lopsided win with his twin goals, while Jehn Joyner, Scott Kim, Sung Bae Park, and Chris Camacho contributed one apiece. Sean Perez avoided a shutout for Tan Holdings when he found the back of the net 10 minutes before the game wrapped up.
Fresh from his stint in an AFC event in Nepal, Joyner suited up for MP United and drilled the first goal in the game in the 18th. Unsa made it a 2-0 count with his first goal in the 33rd and five minutes later Kim also lit up the scoreboard. MP United went on to take a 4-0 halftime lead when Park scored just one minute before the opposing teams took a break.
MP United's lead then ballooned to five with Unsa getting his second goal in the 65th minute, while Perez ended their drought with the goal in the 70th, but Camacho answered with his goal seven minutes later.
MP United 3, Paire 2
Matansa 1, Tan Holdings 0
MP United also prevailed in the boys U15 match played last Friday at the Oleai pitch.
Dakota Hall canned two goals for MP United, while Daniel Lim nailed the other one. Billy Hinson and Joel Fruit had one each for Paire.
Hall broke the ice in the 30th minute, but Paire retaliated five minutes later off Hinson's goal and the match was in a standoff for more than five minutes before the former scored anew to give MP United a 2-1 halftime lead.
Lim stretched MP United's advantage right into the first minute of the second half and it took a while before Paire got its second goal. Fruit moved Paire within one, but he scored with only one minute left and his time run out of time on its bid to force a draw.
In the other boys U15 match, Matansa edged Tan Holdings off Terrence Belcher's goal in the 17th minute.

In the first girls U15 match last Saturday at the Hopwood Junior High School Field, Tan Holdings defeated Matansa.

The second match of the weekend showed Paire forcing a draw against MP United.
Guinevere Borja scored the equalizer in the 61st minute, while Jayda Jeng made the lone goal for MP United in the 18th.
